I agree with cobalt and use 409 first specifically to determine what solvent type direction to try next if I don't know what is on there...
(it does no harm to most surfaces so it is a safe start point)

scrub with a Q-tip,,,if OK then spray soak a area with 409 and spray soak a paper towel and press/lay that on the area...
let it sit for an hour plus and then try a scrub brush with more 409...

do you know which Maguirs wax is on there???

many products (like Nu-Finish) are not "wax" at all....

you need something with the original carrier/liquid chemicals to "re-disolve" some of those....

if you know what it was (and maybe still have some?) re-apply it to re-disolve the residue and use a scrub brush with 409/water rinse to get it all off while still damp...
